Follow the below steps to configure email settings:

  1. Open Inbox > Settings.
  2. Search and select Email settings.
  3. Select Support email. Enabling the support email option means that all incoming emails will be forwarded to the Inbox instead of the actual mailbox, where they will be automatically converted into support tickets.
  4. Add Acknowledgement email for new tickets. This allows an acknowledgement email to be automatically sent to the customer when a new support ticket is created in the inbox, while the inbox agent takes up the ticket to resolve the customer's query. This practice is widely used in the support ticketing industry. You can choose to not send an acknowledgement email by selecting the Do not send acknowledgement email option.
  5. Add details and write the Acknowledgement email.
    • Subject : Add {{userSubject}} to reply to the same mail or you can type a new subject to send the acknowledgement as a new email instead of a reply.
    • Acknowledgement message: You can make use of the options available on the response screen (explained here) and type a message. You can also use dynamic variables in the message, commonly used variables such as Ticket ID, User subject and User name can be included by clicking Add next to the name in ticket details.
    • Click Save.
